The simple and elegant note-taking app Vesper has just been updated for iOS 7. And in keeping with the app's connection to James Bond (Vesper was named after the famous spy's famous cocktail), Vesper's iOS 7 update brings the app to version 1.007, i.e., Double-O-Seven. First and foremost, Vesper 1.007 introduces a new, "designed for iOS 7" interface. Vesper, which was released last June 6, was noted for anticipating the flat design of iOS 7, which was unveiled just a few days later. Now, the app has taken some cues from iOS 7 and has become even flatter, not to mention simpler and more elegant. The new iOS 7-optimized version of Vesper also features support for the iPhone 5s' 64-bit A7 processor and improved text rendering thanks to iOS 7's Text Kit. Moreover, it features new typography settings, including optional small caps for note headlines and adjustable text size and weight. Vesper 1.007 also includes the following improvements:
Vesper 1.007 is available now in the App Store as a free update or as a new $3.99 download. The app is optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 7.0 or later. Vesper is developed by Q Branch, which is named after the fictional research and development division of the British Secret Service in the James Bond films. The real-world software development company is made up of John Gruber (of Daring Fireball fame), Brent Simmons (MarsEdit and NetNewsWire), and Dave Wiskus (formerly of Black Pixel).
